Bonsai - Wet Stencil

Another fun and this time easy technique from TJ... This technique is from Tricia Morris. You can use both watercolor crayons and watercolor pencils with great results. I used crayons, I think it's easier because crayons are softer than pencils.
I enjoyed doing this one and did it with a metal stencil, the ones we use with a light table to dry emboss... then I realize that in fact if you take a tick acetate you can draw your own design and cut it out to use as your unique stencil....!
The background first layer is gold foil paper this is what you see as black!!!
